Dengue fever

"Dengue also called breakbone fever, is a disease that causes fever, headaches and eye aches, and pain in the muscles and joints. It may also cause a runny nose, sore throat, and skin rash. Dengue is caused by four distinct viruses that are carried by mosquitoes. Symptoms appear three to six days after a disease-bearing mosquito bites the victim. The rash breaks out on the fifth day of the illness. The fever subsides and then usually rises again." (World Book, 2017)
